    Can someone post a picture of how the Gimbal clip goes back on. I am shipping my Phanton 2 Vision + and I wanted to put the clip back on. I am not sure how it goes back on. I really didn;t look at it when I took it off.

    Thanks

    It would be wise to tape it in place too.

    Now I'm curious. What's the orange tube tied to your legs? Flotation device?

    I'd like to know what both that orange tube and the other black device is behind the camera.

    Thanks Phantomguy....that's really a floatation device? Also, I've asked this before but didn't get an answer. Why do so many use GSP tracking devices when there is one built into the app?

    Hey M.T how did your P2V+ fly after attaching the 2 recovery items? Any balance issues or major cut in flying times?
    Thanks,
    Moose

    The Getterback only weights 1/2 ounce. Not sure about the tracker in the photo, but the Trax weights in at 26 grams, so that is less than an ounce and a half for both. Should have minimal impact on flight times.

    Can anyone advise - is it recommended to put the gimbal clip in place when casually transporting the quad from home to a flying location...or is it okay that the camera 'hangs'? Thanks.

    From what I understand as a newbie, you should always have the gimbal clip on the unit, during transport and as long as it's powered off. This keeps things in place and might help prevent accidental damage from it flopping and hanging loosely. AND, remember to always remove the clip before powering up the bird and to prevent burning out the servos.
